Gov 2.0

For many, the term Gov 2.0 describes the use of social media tools as a communication and consultation channel between citizens, customers and stakeholders. We share the view of many thought leaders that is broader; that Gov 2.0 is about a type of ’systemic connectedness’ – a willingness and capacity to transform the business of government (and governance) through the connective power of the net… connecting across agency silos, between policy and program delivery, between levels of government, and between government and citizens.
 
Examples of themes to be explored include:
• Citizen-centric
• Online engagement
• Service delivery
• Social government
• Social tools
• Citizen 2.0
